Nike Free Trainer 5.0

Adaptability is key to effective training. Scheduling, weather, location and coaching are constantly changing. Nike is focused on providing one constant – the best shoe for multi-sport training.

Released on March 28, 2013 – a great addition to the Nike running shoe stable; the Nike Free Trainer 5.0. The reason we are excited, it’s a truly multi-purpose shoe. Your scheduling, weather, location and coaching commitments are no doubt constantly changing, so Nike designed lightweight, comfortable and supportive shoe but it’s pièce de résistance is its versatililty. The Free 5.0 is equally at home training in the gym, field or street.

The woven upper is eye-catching and the dynamic fit moves with, adjusts to and supports the foot during the rigours of training. When the foot is at rest or moving forward or backward the bands are flexible. When pressure is applied with side-to-side movements the bands engage and tighten around the foot for enhanced support.


  • Dynamic-fit technology for a glove-like fit.
  • Natural motion design to deliver a barefoot-like feel with resilient cushioning.
  • Aggressive rubber nodes on the sole that provide multi-surface traction.
